Ever since the pandemic happened and new work arrangements were put in place, there has been an increase in people leaving their regular jobs to pursue greener pastures, whatever that may be for them.
This phenomenon, called ‘The Great Resignation’, tells us that people nowadays don’t just want to be in a regular 9 to 5 job – they want to do meaningful work.

When somebody comes into a new role, the expectations have to be set. Oftentimes, when people leave a job or they quit a job, one of the things that they list as their reason for leaving is they didn’t understand their role. They didn’t feel like they were working toward a purpose. They didn’t feel like they were, you know, clear on their expectations. And that all comes from a lack of effective communication.
Streamline Your Communication
A lot of organizations communicate too much. They have email, they have slack, and all of these things. They use too many messaging channels and people are getting too much information.
What they need to do is streamline your communication. And you don’t need to send company emails 100 times a week. One bullet point email would be awesome.
Creating Loyalty Through Necessity
When companies hire people, a lot of the time they don’t really take the time to build that personal connection. But to help people have clarity about their role in the company, leaders need to make the effort to get to know that individual and their ‘why’ – what’s their motivation for working? For getting into the company? What are their career and personal goals?
That right there is a game-changer because it creates a personal connection between the individual and the company, and that bond creates loyalty to a company. And when people are loyal, they’re going to work better, harder.
